The win follows the successful completion and recent hand over of two other luxurious, new build care homes for the same firm, Yorkare Homes.  Both Louth Manor in Louth, Lincolnshire and Cottingham Manor Care Home in Cottingham, East Yorkshire completed on time and within budget. 

Hobson & Porter has a longstanding history with Yorkare Homes, first working for the award-winning, family run care company in 2015.

Mark Smee, contracts director, from Hobson & Porter said: “Our first project for Yorkare Homes was the conversion and extension of Lindsey Hall, a former school in Cleethorpes seven years ago. We successfully tendered for that job, then started on a three further impressive new build projects for the company – Beverley Parklands in Beverley, Tranby Park in Hessle and Mere Hall in Hornsea, all of which raised the bar in terms of design and finish.

“This latest contract win, which we competitively tendered for, will see us build a 67-bedroom care home on London Road, in a 1.25-acre plot, completed with bar area, cinema, hairdressing suite, library and lounge.”

Laurence Garton, from Brough-based Yorkare Homes, said: “We are a family business that has operated in the care industry for over 30 years and our homes provide outstanding care within a luxury environment.

“We now have 9 standout homes across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire and have found Hobson & Porter always deliver the high standards of craftmanship and build quality we expect. A real partner, that we can rely on and trust to understand the challenges we face and the time constraints we are under, Hobson & Porter have successfully met our needs on numerous projects across two counties.

“Both Louth Manor and Cottingham Manor are immediately proving popular with residents looking for a special and luxurious home that exceeds everything else in the Louth and Cottingham areas. Following this success, we’re delighted that work is now underway in Sleaford and residents will be able to move in from summer next year.”

In addition to the care home construction work Hobson & Porter has become renowned for, the firm has also established an enviable reputation in the health and social care sector having completed a £4m project for Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust on its MRI facility in Grimsby, as well as an £2.5m build of the new Willand Primary Care Centre in Anlaby, Hull. Hobson & Porter is currently working on a £6m refurbishment of the A&E department and new eight-bay resuscitation ward for the United Lincolnshire Hospital Trust at Lincoln County Hospital.

Joe Booth, business development director at Hobson & Porter, said: “Working across both the private and public health and social care industries, we have built an impressive bank of projects that showcase our capabilities. Partnering with our clients from the outset, we ensure a smooth and cost-effective programme of works, and this has been key to us securing repeat business from our clients in this sector.”
